Hello Winter…

This is definitely the last day of the petunias...

This is definitely the last day of the petunias…

We have had it way too good… the strong frost predicted passed us by on several occasions, and our yard didn’t look half bad this fall. This all came to a screeching halt: It snowed last night!

I am not whining! I am just sharing. πŸ˜‰ After the foggy day yesterday we are in for the long haul. The positive part is that the lake has not frozen over yet. I tend to measure our winter by how many months the lake stays frozen. In eight years of living here the longest stretch was 7 solid months of ice. I won’t elaborate!

That’s the weather report for today! Thanks for checking in. I am safely and warmly tucked away in the studio doing research for my Kantha book.

Hope it is warmer where you are today. I even hope for some sunshine for everyone. The sun always makes my outlook brighter. Wait, I spot some blue sky through the clouds… there is hope!

There is hope... maybe the sun will come out after all and shine bright and warm enough to make the white stuff go away...

May your day be productive and filled with creative opportunities.

    • I have not ins with anyone – unfortunately… hence the snow this morning. πŸ˜‰ Last year we experienced a green Christmas in Germany. I am hopeful that this snow will melt and this is not the beginning of winter. Hang in there, Karen. We shall do our bit to hold back on the snow…

  2. The first snow always looks so,pretty. Forgive me, but my husband went to the ocean this morning in shirt sleeves. I am working on gifts in my studio with the window open. Rain and high winds predicted for tomorrow.

    The snow on your stone work gives the garden a different but lovely soft dimension.
    As fresh as it looks, please dont send the snow eastward to us just yet.
